Architect Firm Membership
Joining as an AIA Philadelphia architecture firm connects your practice with a network of contacts to turn to for practice and design resources. Member firms improve the practice of architecture, adding their voice to planning and preservation issues, supporting career development for employees, and promoting the firm and architecture to the public. Dues for joining as an Architect Member Firm are based on the number of registered and non-registered architects within a firm.
$80 per AIA registered architect within the firm
$190 per non-AIA registered architect within the firm
If you would like to join or renew online, simply download the Member Firm Form and email it to Julianne Foley, Member Services & Events Manager at [email protected]. If you have questions about membership, please call 215-569-3186, ext. 101.
